Derek Gow leads a passionate quest to bring back beavers to Britain's waterways. Historically, they've been considered a pest in Britain, but, in reality, they revitalize water systems. The story of their demise involves the hunting preferences of the landed class, but there's hope for their future as people begin to realize how valuable these busy builders are. Guest: Derek Gow, author of “Bringing Back the Beaver: The Story of One Man’s Quest to Rewild Britain’s Waterways”
